Best Dating App in Egypt

1. Hawaya

Many people in Egypt today are still under the get pressure from families to settle for an arranged marriage. Or, at least, they need to find a Muslim wife or husband. This may be a reason why Hawaya can become the first Egyptian dating app.

Hawaya, previously named Harmonica, is advertised as a marriage-oriented dating app for Muslims. The name itself is romantic and was inspired by the word “Hawa” which means “love” in Arabic. In 2019, it was acquired by Match Group, which also owns Tinder and OkCupid.

The app’s matchmaking algorithm was built with the help of a team of psychologists, where the users’ preferences are analyzed to bring them appropriate matches.

Hawaya also focuses on the privacy and security of its members. When signing up, it authenticates all new members using a ‘selfie verification’ system that works with a highly developed technological infrastructure to prevent the creation of fake profiles. Moreover, Hawaya offers female users the option of initially displaying profile pictures out of focus.
